and technology and invention and art and science come which no other primate has done. very simple example of primates creating tools for using language, but it was indefinitely expandable hierarchical fashion. >> host: so you're thinking of the main functions of the neo cortex has been this high-level functions such as decision-making, inhibiting and proper actions. i mean, the neo cortex is a huge number of things. >> guest: it does lots of things that high on both levels and uses the same algorithm. i've recognized the ages of objects for crossfires ofa and obvious functions that he got at the high-level, how to recognize and say she's pretty but that was funny. it exists at the highest level of the conceptual hierarchy. one powerful piece of evidence that came out was what happens to be one, a region of the neo cortex of the optic nerve stillson, generally the process is a very primitive pattern and images, like the ages of objects. so this low-level, simple patterns. what happens to it and it congenitally blind person? it actually gets taken over by the frontal cortex to help that pro

tremendous results, the byproduct of phenomenal advances in technology and the art of medicine with compassion. it is a great profession that when we have got the institute of medicine saying 30% of the time we miss the mark, we have got to study this. we have got to make it a discipline of science and say how can we look at this like we look at cancer? where are the cracks? where the mistakes? that was the main reason i decided to go down this path. >> host: that statistic of 30% in quality, waste and variability is a stunning statistic. why do you think that, and you mentioned culture a little while ago. what is it about the culture of health care, where those types of activities have been allowed to go on for such a length of time. if you look at any other industry, 30% waste or 30% error rate really would be unacceptable. how does that occur within health care? >> you know it's a great wondered why people tolerate 30% waste and health care but they wouldn't tolerated in any other industry. i saw a statistic recently in a report, the average income of an american in the unit

the phenomenal advances in technology into the heart of compassion and there was a great profession but when you have the institute of medicine say and 40% of the time we miss the mark we've got to study this, we have to make it a discipline of science and say how can we look at this likely will get cancer where are the cracks and the mistakes and how can be streamlined care and that is the main reason i decided to write on accountable. >> host: it is a statistic of 30% it's a stunning statistic why do you think that -- and you mentioned culture a little while ago what is it about the culture of health care where those types of activities have been allowed to go on for such a lifetime for 30% waste or aero rate it would be unacceptable how does that occur within health care? >> guest: it is a wonder how they have 30% leased and health care but in the industry the average income of an american in the united states has gone up about 30% over the last decade they have gone up about 68% of the same time period for health care costs so you wonder why is it that we tolerate this we talk to business le
